I believe both words "optimistic" and "truth" were stated before evidence. And, perhaps the images of the dead Hussein family members, and JFK years back in the media set an expectation. If the intelligence was available last August, therefore timing is suspicious, yes?

I'm sure that Asif Ali Zardari and the other Pakistani leader's heads are reeling after the U.S. entered their airspace unannounced performing a military operation on a private property only to inform them after the fact.

Whether or not UBL was taken out last evening, or exactly when, we'll probably never know for certain. However one of the positive ramification's of this event is the grand and well deserved "fuck-you!" to a sleazy and corrupt Pakistani Government.

The billions of dollars the U.S. has poured into Pakistan in a "so-called" co-operative effort towards a non-Taliban Afghanistan has always been circumspect.

The recent upsurge of violence in Afghanistan is based out of Pakistan, and how Pakistan’s effort in stopping the training, the financial backing, the supply of equipment to terrorists is stopgap at best.

Pakistan's (nuclear backed) military due to it's massive size and strength should be more supportive and co-operative towards a non-Taliban Afghanistan instead of protecting their primary objective which is their religious opposition and hatred of India.

Ironically, it was the U.S. who supported the Taliban in it's efforts to oust Russia in Afghanistan decades ago.

And yes, once again, the solutions of the past have become the problems of the future.

Thanks for weighing in.

True enough, conspiracy nuts might see something suspicious in the timing. What I see however, is a determined and meticulous President, and his direct commands, making absolutely certain of their mission and carefully evaluating all options, rehearsing diligently, preparing for all contingencies, limiting collateral, etc. ( One chopper failed and was destroyed on the ground... no problem!! ) This is truly, with certainty, Mission Accomplished.

Agree with all your assertions re: Pakistan. It's a sinkhole for our tax dollars. Indeed, "the solutions of the past have become the problems of the future."

Now back to the music...
